1 Part II: Strategic Planning for a Successful 1:1 Program Dr. Michael GielniakDirector of Programs & Development Great Lakes 1:1 Computing ConferenceDecember 3, 20101
2 Purposes of SessionProvide action steps for: vision, planning, development and launch of one to one programDefine critical leadership lessons learned, best practices and templates for program successProvide forum for questioning, discussing, and reflecting
3 Needed: A Roadmap Shared Vision Strategic action plan Personnel roles, responsibilitiesEmbedded professional learningCommunicationsTimelinesBenchmarksEvaluation (monitoring/adjusting)
6 1. Planning Well designed plan for implementation & sustainability Participants: Principals, Teachers, Technology Coordinators & Curriculum Directors (along with parents, students, local community members)Vision, mission, goals, milestones, resources, roles, responsibilities, monitoring, evaluationDevelop a shared vision!
7 2. Leadership Full principal support & involvement Ongoing PD for leading school reformScheduled team meetingsObservationsCommunicationsLeading second order change in schoolsDigital Funding Integration ToolsL
8 3. Tech Prep & SupportA solid technology infrastructure and maintenance/service planConnectivity and access pointsSupport policies and proceduresCharging and storingOn-Site presence by Tech. personnelDeveloping ability of teachers and students to troubleshoot
9 4. Professional Learning and Development Regularly scheduled for administrators, teachers and tech personnelCoaching/Mentoring ModelChanging the classroom cultureFocus on curricular integrationDedicated time & resourcesL
10 High Quality & Robust Professional Learning System-wideOngoingConsistently planned, scheduled, engagedNetwork with professional community-state, country and world-wide
12 5. Communications Sharing information with key audiences Internal – Teachers, Librarians, Students, Custodial, Bus Drivers, Tech Support, Curriculum Director, Board Members, Support StaffExternal – Parents/Guardians, Local Media, Legislators, Businesses
13 6. PoliciesPolicies and procedures guided by instructional goals and documentedBoard assurance agreementStudent acceptable useRemain flexible – you may learn some things that influence you to move policies in a different direction
14 7. Assistance Seek help from others Demonstration Sites Lead Teachers SuperCoachesRegional SupportResearch other program ‘lessons learned’Vendor partnerOther districts/states
15 8. Expectation Management On average, the research says that it takes 3-5 years for teachers to effectively and seamlessly integrate technology and instructionStudent achievement will not increase as a result of having 24/7 technologyStudent achievement will increase, over time, when an adopted curriculum and instructional program is integrated with 24/7 technology
16 9. Program EvaluationAn objective, outside research organization is needed to provide consistent and focused results relative to program goalsNeed to be accountable and responsible for reaching benchmarks, adjusting program as neededNeed to build sustainable models
22 Building Capacity Create a professional development plan Plan and create timeline for building level training(principal, teachers, and tech support)Plan for lead teacher trainingPlan for community presentations
23 Program Evaluation 1) Collect baseline data Create a program assessment plan and timelineCreate program goals1) Collect baseline data2) Develop assessment protocol and tools
24 Infrastructure Planning Create an implementation timeline1) Wireless network testing2) Bandwidth capacity testing in pilot classPlan for securing signed AUPsPlan for the distribution of devices to students
25 1:1 Implementation Checklist Identification of a district one-to-one program committee and meeting scheduleDistrict leadership planning session (Superintendent, Curriculum Director, Principal, technology director, teacher leaders)Plan and create timeline for building the appropriate infrastructure
26 Infrastructure Checklist: Building Level Computing device for each student in the classroomPlan and provide onsite technical supportDevelop relationship with vendor(s)Provide one extra device for every 10 laptops (replacements for service)
27 Infrastructure Checklist: Building Level (continued) Provide a charging cart for each classroomProvide two battery packs for each laptopPlan and provide accidental damage and theft insurance for all computing devicesProvide laptop for each teacher involved
28 Infrastructure Checklist: District Dedicated server space sufficient to handle the capacity of the program.All students and teachers should have their own folder on this network server.Enough access points to ensure wireless connectivity for all students in the one-to-one learning space at the same time.An appropriate firewall, virus protection and content filter.
29 Infrastructure Checklist: District (continued) Sufficient technology personnel to support the one-to-one program.Safe and Secure Communication & Community Building Tools with Web 2.0 functionalityData Collection, Management & ReportingAn established relationship with the device vendor and teacher access to their help desk and other support.
30 Infrastructure Checklist: District (continued) A support plan that facilitates quick response to repairs and other technical questions that is easily communicated to teachers in the program.Appropriate device preparation that includes a good image, adjustment of all settings, a device identification method, and loading and testing all program software.Appropriate damage and theft insurance.
31 Implementation Tips Implement fully in at least one classroom Train at least two teachers initiallyTrain at least one trainer (lead teacher) in each building prior to full building implementation
